The Most Unusual Boat at Trawler Fest-Anacortes

Island Ranger

Come see the Island Ranger. This is the last day of Trawler Fest and this 1953 Army tug is for sale for $399. The machinery spaces are enough to make a grown man cry they are so meticulously maintained. Wife warning: The decor, too, has an all-guy feel.

She has a Detroit 12-149 keel cooled diesel engine and dual 2-71 gensets. She carries 6,000 gallons of fuel. She is a two stateroom, two head boat, and the sweeping view from the pilothouse would make anyone feel like they owned the world.

General admission to the show is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes.
